For me, summer is blue. All its tones, from sky azure to deep dark emerald.  In the painting I show those few moments between the sky and the water... the feeling of flight. This picture is one in a summer series, based on sketches of charcoal on paper, performed on the beach.

Getting to Know Nata

Czech artist Nata Zaikina’s paintings are inspired by her 1970s childhood. As she walks the streets in Prague, she is inspired by anything that triggers a memory of her youth--an old movie, a song on the radio, or a conversation overheard on the street. Her paintings of children’s games emit warmth and joy. The viewer can’t help but smile and reminisce upon their own days as an exuberant child. Nata is especially interested in capturing her figures in movement, particularly while jumping. “I try to show the hidden dynamics inside the static figure,” she says. The artist works from an attic studio in Prague, where she looks out over the red tiled roofs of the city while she paints.
